My guess is you have changed the brand of DVD disc you are now using.
Cheap DVD blanks will do this
I also have heard some people had the problem when using blank DVD+R as apposed to DVD-R

Or the app could be making assumption about field order, and is getting it wrong.

You're not really going to DVD with that app right? There may be other errors introduced by the other SW you'tre using.

I had problems with non-standard files (not 720x480, 29.97 fps, 48kHz), and found that if I wanted to burned directly to DVD, that ShowBiz DVD handled them fine (it comes free with may PCs).

You talk about using DVD-R. I have never had any luck with DVD-R on anything (none of my DVD players, and I have 3 DVD recorders that use + and -, and 3 DVD players, and none will read DVD-R videos after being recorded. Just courious, what do you do to get DVD-R to record and play videos.

riverthor,hmmm interesting normally its the other way around.
I wonder if you are using Memorex discs, sometimes it is the quality of the disc or maybe you need to do a firmware update.
I have to go out right now and will be going away for a few weeks soon so if you care to email me I may be able to assist you more. aprilmay@gmail.com.
cheers

You may want to try a program like SimpleDVD - one that definitely doesn't recompress the MPEG-2 file.

I've found SimpleDVD to be a quick and easy way to make a DVD (http://simpledvd.honzakov.net/)

Try playing the DVD back on a couple of different DVD players and on a computer. Do you see the same problem?
